Canada ramps up airline security measures

OTTAWA: Canada’s transport minister on Tuesday announced stepped-up security measures on some international flights to the country, acknowledging a “risk” that led to the United States banning certain personal electronics in the cabin of flights from several countries. However, Minister Marc Garneau declined to elaborate on the new measures and said travelers to Canada would still be allowed to carry on personal electronics such as laptops. Garneau said he ordered, “some measures to increase security for flights coming from certain countries where the destination was Canada.” “Those measures have now been put in place to ensure greater security for our air passengers,” he said.
